The historic Paris Climate Change Agreement, clinched in 2015, puts the global community on an irreversible path towards a low-carbon future. The central goal of the Paris Agreement is to limit global warming to well below 2°C and as close to 1.5°C as possible to prevent dangerous tipping points in the climate system.
For this to happen, global emissions must peak soon and be driven down drastically thereafter. A balance, known as “climate neutrality” (sometimes referred to as “carbon neutrality”), must then be achieved in the second half of this century between global emissions and removals through absorption by healthy, natural ecosystems or through other human-managed means. To achieve this, everybody must contribute - we need the right team spirit!
adidas Group has long been recognized for its leadership when it comes to
corporate social and environmental responsibility. And with the vision of our
Green Company Initiative to become a carbon neutral company, we are committed to
continue to measure our carbon footprint, to reduce our carbon emissions and to
compensate unavoidable emissions.”
